A queer retelling of Snow White and Rose Red in which teenage twins Ivory and Rosie battle evil religious extremists to save their loves and their circus family. Twins Rosie and Ivory have grown up at their ringmaster mother's knee, and after years on the road, they're returning to Port's End, the closest place to home they know. Yet something has changed in the bustling city: fundamentalist flyers paper the walls and preachers fill the squares, warning of shadows falling over the land. The circus prepares a triumphant homecoming show, full of lights and spectacle that could chase away even the darkest shadow. But during Rosie's tightrope act, disaster strikes, and Ivory is forced to step into the spotlight. As it becomes clear that something sinister lurks in Port's End, Ivory and her magician crush find themselves in a race against time to save their circus family. Soon true love and sisterhood are put to the test in this lush, sensuous novel set against the backdrop of a glamorous circus.
